Question

Hi all,

I was wondering lately... many things, in truth. However, concerning WoWs, the main thing is: Why is my FPS-rate so terribly low?

 

I'm running a GeForce GTX 1060, have 24 GB RAM, and a Win7 x64. And yet, I'd expect my FPS on maxed settings to be higher than the actual 10-15 FPS I get when in-battle... Am I just plain wrong or what?

I play on a (relatively) high spec laptop for its age, NVidia GTX 670M graphics card, 12 GB RAM, but found out a long time ago that I had to configure the game to play with the GTX and not the default Intel HD Graphics 4000. Could it be similar?

 

I did it by opening NVIDIA Control Panel, Manage 3d Settings, Program Settings..

 then scroll down to the game and select it to run using 'High performance NVIDIA processor'.

 

No idea if this actually is your problem, but hope it helps. Let us know.

Well... I'm getting mixed results here.

 

First off, THANK YOU. The NVidia Panel did indeed have some ... strange... settings set. After correcting them, I now peak out at about 40 FPS. So far, so good.

HOWEVER, that only happens at the very start of battles (i.e. there's no "action") and while most of the time FPS are somewhat stable around the 20-mark, it still drops to 15 or lower rather often (i.e. whenever lots of things happen simultaneously, like being under heavy bombardment and suddenly detecting torpedos on top of it).

Also, we seem to have different NVidia options panels... I'm not given that specified option altogether, I have to set every option I basically set in the Game options themselves in the NV-Opt-Panel...I'm not given the option which GPU the program should use globally (which may be due to the fact that I only have the one GPU, and no on-board GPU...).

 

TL;DR: peak performance improved, low FPS-drops (FPS < 15) still frequent in-battle.

well, it seems that the issue is resolved... after switching to a new SSD. Somehow that increased the fps to a stable bracket of around 60 (excluding sound-related issues, still going via on-board soundcard. dedicated is slated to arrive later this week.).

...Which begs the question: (I know it's not exactly a "nice" one...) Just HOW ABYSMALLY BADLY is WoWS optimized...?^^ After all, HDDs are STILL the current standard of data storage devices in home PCs...

 

PS. thanks for the suggestion nti9, but apart from a USB-hub-driver, there were no new ones. I keep my drivers up to date since I had a related problem some years ago...
